Poured from the 12oz bottle into a shaker. Amber almost mahogany color with a cream colored head. Aroma is predominantly citrusy hops. Flavor is bready malt with lots of citrusy hops and some piney notes as well. Medium bodied, crisp, and mildly astringent. Very nice IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Bend, OR). Pours a nbice gollden amber glowing hue, healthy gllow compliments a subtle haze and some lively bubbles. Offwhite head atop dies to a mellow layer, thicker ringer with ok lacing atop. Aromas are a bit bitter and biting, some citric grapefruit, firmer to potent florals and decent malty body falls behind that more intriguing fresh hop nose. Initial is sufficiently bitter, the lighter end of medium in body with florals, subtle pineapple and decent bitterness growing on the palate. Earth, green leafy life and florals meet a gentle sweeter body beneath, mixing with sweeter pineapple stale juicy jabs. Some firmer spicy, bitter earthy backend is dry, sufficiently bitter. Less ABV hit than the Joe but that one had a more intriguing hop profile. Fairly drinkable, fuzzy backend and finish. A solid fresher appeal with bitter firmer hops, solid if unspectacular or unmoving nose. Solid stuff

Really solid commercial deScription on this one that lends to most of the tasting notes I would have given it. Resinous but balanced, solid IPA.

Draft at TnB. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like grapefruit hops, resin, caramel malt, some tropical fruits, and a hint of floral. Very tasty. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like caramel malt, hop resin, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and citrus hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale golden hue with outstanding clarity and a large, fluffy cream-colored cap. Aroma’s a nice blend of floral, citrus and tropical notes. I get a little papaya and kiwi; some honey and chlorophyll; a bunch of pink starburst. The flavor carries much of these sweeter hop notes along with a bit of pininess and a finish of shortbread. Nice, complex hop character in this one.

On tap at the Barrel Bar. It poured a hazy golden/yellow color with a tan head. The aroma was of grapefruit, papaya, tropical fruits and some vanilla. The taste was similar to the aroma with some bitterness a little sweetness and some maltiness. Good stuff
